Needs from Swedish industry for standardisation of metal AM

Additive manufacturing (AM) of metal is a relatively new technology under fast development and a rapidly growing market where the lack of standards is an obstacle. The goal of the workshop is to build a solid and well supported base for a Swedish standardisation roadmap for metal AM. Today, an international standardization roadmap exists as well as a general roadmap for industrialisation of metal AM in Sweden, RAMP-UP. It is now time to connect the two and prioritize standardization based on input from Swedish industry to open the market. In fact, lack of appropriate standards has been identified as one of the important obstacles to realise increased industrialization and reach the market. A priority for Sweden would therefore be to set a strategic scope on national level to identify the most important standardization issues and to guide the effort of contributing and influencing international standardization work. This work is funded by a Vinnova project with Swerim, Chalmers, RISE IVF and SIS as partners and is performed in collaboration with the Swedish Arena for AM of metals, CAM2 and SIS.
